Let’s face it – if you haven’t heard the new F8X BMW M3/M4 twins’ factory exhaust, you’re one lucky son of a batch of cookies.
To put it plainly, the stock exhaust on BMW’s latest M & M combo sounds absolutely horrific! Some have likened the sound to that of a weed whacker – not exactly what new customers would expect to hear coming from a car that carries such a legendary lineage.
Naturally, this didn’t sit well with us. So, we decided to do what we do best – engineer a top quality performance exhaust system that not only looks and sounds great, but adds a good amount of power as well. Continue Reading
Let’s get one thing clear off the bat – we’ve got no rooting interest in the success of the New York Knicks or Los Angeles Lakers. Why bring this up? Well, these are two franchises with long and storied histories. They have heritage, name-brand recognition, and (for the most part) know how to win.
Yet here in the summer of 2015, both are being snubbed by some of the NBA’s top free agents. There are multiple basketball-related reasons for this, but since we aren’t a sports blog, we won’t pretend to know anything about those. The bottom line is the Lakers and the Knicks are in a position that’s quite foreign to them: they’re underdogs.
We can relate somewhat. We recently launched our latest ACTIVE-8 tuning module for the latest crop of turbocharged BMWs – a market that’s already quite crowded. However, if there’s one thing that history has shown us, its that you should never count out a perpetual winner.
Here’s what makes the ACTIVE-8 the real MVP: Continue Reading
We like to have our cake, and eat it too. This is probably why you won’t see any of us competing in the Crossfit Games during ESPN2’s late night programming anytime soon. Where you WILL catch us though, is at events like the recent high-performance driving event at Palm Beach International Raceway, put on by our friend Tony and the crew at The HPDE.
Yes, you. The enthusiast. Our fans. The guy reading this in Starbucks when he knows full well he should be studying for finals.
Thank you to our supporters, and yes, even to our detractors.
We initially threw our support behind concept of The BMW Event because we believed in it. The mission presented was enormous: Organize and publicize the largest gathering of BMW owners the Southeast region had ever seen.
We were skeptical, but optimistic; the potential was obvious and we anticipated a good turnout…but what we experienced at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Saturday, April 25, 2015 blew us – and everyone involved in the planning, marketing, and execution of the event – completely away.
In total, there were over 500 BMWs, more than 1,000 attendees, and dozens of sponsors and vendors offering everything from free wheel sets to detailing services, to a mobile dyno. The hype was real…but these are the 7 ways that the inaugural ‘ The BMW Event’ lived up to, and even surpassed it: Read More
A few weeks ago, we had a customer contact us regarding his E60 BMW M5. He expressed to us that he had been contemplating whether or not to bite the bullet and replace the V-10 S85’s bearings after seeing and hearing of the horrible aftermath that can ensue should they fail. With 114K miles on the M5’s odometer, we strongly urged him to bring “El Guapo” in before he saw the same catastrophic failure other unfortunate //M-powered cars have previously experienced.

You’re one in a million.
We really mean that – we’re not just saying it so you’ll be our friend. You are one out of one million BMW owners within 12 hours of our home base in Miami, FL. And while being an individual is important, sometimes it can also be lonely. That’s why we’re inviting you – and the million who share your passion and enthusiasm down to Homestead-Miami Speedway on April 25, 2015.
We’re glad you asked. We may not have a million reasons – but here are five that should convince you not to miss The BMW Event.

There is a reason we use one year as a significant measurement of time. A great many things can happen over the course of a single rotation around our sun. Journeys are began and completed. We as individuals grow older and wiser. Taylor Swift blows through dozens of relationships and corresponding hit singles.
A year can be used as an assessment of progress. For Ira Schacter and his S65-powered ’33 hot rod project, progress was certainly evident. In fact, it has been over a year since the idea first made the leap from dream to reality – a reality that included some trials and obstacles that Ira could not have possibly predicted at its onset. Despite this, Ira is having the time of his life. Learn More
